School Block Membership

Guidelines to the BWL School Block Membership

Following the success of the 2012-2013 School Block Membership, British Weight Lifting are continuing the programme for the 2013-2014 academic year.

Schools can register an unlimited number of students who are taking part in any weight related activity. This could be Olympic weightlifting, weight training or Crossfit style activities.  Students taking part in Olympic weightlifting will gain eligibility to compete in local and regional level competitions plus the British Schools Championships. Students taking part in weight training will be given access to the BWL Strength & Functional Movement Program where they can set goals and track their progress in safe weight training.


Competition Eligibility

  • School block members are eligible to compete in: BWL Development Cups, BWL British Schools Championships, BWL British Colleges and University Championships and also local and regional level junior competitions.
  • School block members are not eligible to compete in any BWL U17 competitions and above (with the exception of the BWL British Schools & Colleges Championships).
  • In order to compete in BWL u17 and above, school pupils must become a full member of a BWL affiliated club.
  • All students competing in any school block eligible events must have confirmation of agreement from their school on school letter headed paper and this should be submitted with their entry form to the competition manager for that event.

Incentive Schemes

  • All school block members will also be eligible to take part in BWL Incentive Schemes e.g. the BWL Strength & Power Series and BWL Strength & Functional Movement program.

All students will receive an individual membership number so that they can compete in BWL incentives and competitions.  The school will also receive an official certificate of affiliation and the BWL monthly newsletter in which all BWL Clubs are eligible to feature! Competition results and reports will also feature in the newsletter and on the BWL website.
